What Students Are Saying

3.33 Average Rating
a ten out of ten rate is what cal state bakersfield deserves to receive due to the fact that it has taught me how to value our environment. also because it has had plenty of educational opportunities not only for my intended major but also for my personality. i have had a great residential and educational experience that i would recommend for other students to apply to this school.
